, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
bernanke keeps his job. in california. not many people found a corporate tax to bring in one billion for business taken and entrepreneurs outside of the state who want to do business in the state. explain this? >> california is in a fiscal mess and they will raise taxes. and i am a company based in new york and i do business in california. california is now going to tax me california profit's tax even though i am a new york based business. they are spreading the tax net to companies based out of state. >> brian: governor brown went to college campus to get support for this. he got it. >> california is in a financial mess and they raised taxes and passed proposition 30 that reallies taxes again. >>rian: now you will not do business there. >> california reelected president obama by a 20 point margin because they want a bailout. they think the second obama term will bail them out of their financial problemms. they are raising taxes leftt, right and and pushing businesses out of the state and they want a bailout and i think at point they will probably get >> brian: in terms of me doing t
to california. her family would like to go back. she might still around again because -- she raised $215 million. she is the house's biggest fund- raiser. >> we will end up with a more polarized congress. steny hoyer is more moderate. he is an institutional -- has been around for decades and represents a lot of the new democrats. the big question will be, will party, a caucus dominated by liberals and i would say democrats are much more liberal than your average democrat around the country. will they tolerate steny hoyer who they do not see as one of their own? they see him as a compromiser. >> the white house has been ignoring -- democrats have been an afterthought. if they had a leader, there would have more muscle. >> one thing that i find interesting to watch is when you can step back and look at the bigger picture, you have a house that is not budging and testing republican. which means that how frustrated that american people are about the non action, about the tea party. this means that i think barack obama should be on the losing end of this campaign because the american people want a ch
it to their advantage in states like illinois. california is a whole different story where you have an independent commission drawing the lines there. it really will dramatically shape control of congress. >> i was simply going to make the point about illinois. the viewers don't think it's only the republicans who are redrawing districts. democrats did the exact same thing in illinois, and we'll see what the results are. sometimes they draw districts expecting a certain outcome and the voters surprise them. >> brown: while we're talking about the how, because earlier we talked about the senate in a kind of bigger picture. stu, remind us about the house situation. >> all 435 seats are up in the house but not all 435 are competitive. only about 70 or so are really worth watching for the chance of one party to steal a seat from the other party. the democrats need 25 seats in order toigate majority and presumably reinstall california, nancy pelosi as speaker be as she once was. that seems unlikely. the democrats have said we have enough seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington,
, california, are trying to determine the motive for a deadly workplace shooting. they say lawrence jones was in the middle of his shift when he pulled out a handgun and fatally shot two of his co-workers at close range before wounding two others and then taking his own life. >>> and in michigan, police have arrested the man they believe is behind a highway shooting spree. 24 shootings in the last 3 weeks alone. one driver was hurt. police say 1 tip out of nearly 3,000 that came in led them to the suspect's home. >>> and in medical news, going bald and other signs of aging may be much more serious than we thought. they could, in fact, be tell-tale signs of heart disease. a new study found that people are some 57% more likely to have a heart attack if they develop at least three of the following four signs of aging. baldness, a receding hairline, ear lobe increases or fatty deposits around the eyes. checking for those signs of aging should be part of every doctor's exam. >>> and a woman who is probably the nation's bravest and most determined voter. 21-year-old galicia malone, was in labor
the campaign. >> remember when carl drove they did a bunch of california events at the end of their race when george w. bush was running just to get inside the opponent's head. don't overestimate the maturity of what's going on. >> woodruff: i'm told they have senate races that we are prepared to call. i'm just looking at what time it is. it's 22 minutes after 9:00 on the east coast. we are able to project for the pennsylvania senate that bob casey is returning for a second term. >> ifill: he beat tom smith who was a very well known tea-part candidate. he put a lot of money in. >> $20 million of his own money. the democratic incumbent wins in michigan. >> woodruff: i remember the day when there weren't that many women. we've just announced three in a row. here in texas someone who will replace a woman in the senate. he is ted cruz. he has been very closely affiliated with the tea party. this is a win for the republicans in the state of texas and a very important win. >> ifill: and a rising star in the republican party. he had a big turn at the republican national convention as i recall. >> he
of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winter in florida. -- the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we plan 4, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same% of the electorate as in 2008. we got if you got% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, boating rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battle ground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino v
in southern california. making their debut just in time for the holiday shopping season. the idea came from the cupcake vending machine, already a hit in beverly hills. caviar can be just as sweet says the vending machine's owner. is it about making it accessible to people? >> very accessible, convenient, at every price point. >> reporter: so it is caviar out of a vending machine in a shopping mall, but some say this just doesn't belong. >> reporter: owner david lenz says his caviar is served with more flair at his restaurant, not food court fudge. >> that's the part i don't get. i can see getting it, taking it home to have some champagne with it just on your lunch break? it doesn't add up. with a soda from the food court? >> exactly. >> reporter: we found plenty of caviar critics. >> would you put $500 in a machine? >> no. >> would you buy eggs out of a vending machine? much less fish eggs. >> reporter: but the flurries are buying for their daughter this christmas. a little luxury for the layman, conveniently dispensed just in time for the holidays. nothing too fishy about it. kyung lah, c
the gentlelady from california, ms. woolsey, for five minutes. ms. woolsey: mr. speaker, since the house last convened in late september, about 30 more americans have given their lives in the war in afghanistan. the total number of fatalities has now passed 2,000, and as of october 7, we've been at war in afghanistan for a staggering 11 years. that's more than 2,000 families that will have an empty chair this thanksgiving, more than 2,000 families with a void that can't possibly be filled. husbands and wives who will have to go on without their life partner, children missing a parent, parents who are suffering the terrible grief of losing a child. the human cost has become too steep for our nation to bear. we can't ask for our troops and their families to endure any more sacrifice for military occupation. now more than a decade old which has not accomplished its goals and is undermining our national security as well. and of course the fiscal burden is one that rests on the shoulders of every single tax -paying american, the afghanistan price tag will be high even for a successful, well-execut
, we don't know what is going to happen. nancy pelosi is in california. her home in napa valley was broken into on monday. so, she actually has some little housekeeping to take care of. apparently people broken. they don't know what is missing. sort of this bizarre thing. in the event he does retire or resign from congress, steny hoyer would be the front runner to take over as minority leader. the subtext -- almost a shakespearean subtext -- between steny hoyer and nancy pelosi, they have in turn together on capitol hill in the 1960's and they have been rivals for years. the last 10 or 12 years, competing for leadership positions in the democratic caucus. hoyer would very much like to be minority leader and he would make a bid. the question now is whether pelosi is trying to live up somebody who she -- who would be her successor of choice. there is a lot of trauma and we just don't know where the dominoes will fall until we know her intentions. it >> just to wrap up -- who is in the next generation of would- be party leaders who would like to have pelosi's endorsement or if not
but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher
. >> and i have nevada in there. you live on the border of nevada and california. demographically gone for the republicans right now? >> this is a state that republicans should have won if we had the same hispanic turnout of the vote percentage under president bush, under john mccain. mitt romney would be ahead in nevada. it's not the case. president obama is going to win nevada. >> anybody here think the president will lose iowa? >> i think he's going to win iowa. and i changed my opinion on that. i thought he was going to lose iowa. >> you believe iowa. where do you fall? >> the president. >> look what this does here. this puts -- we put it up to 259 so th so then he's is 11 away. anybody thinks he's going to win florida? so you give romney this, florida. colorado, i think it will be the closest state in the country. >> i agree. >> where does it go? >> romney. >> romney wins. >> really close but romney. >> it might all come down to ohio. >> it may. and virginia we have sitting he here. so this could mean to me as a realistic scenario and i won't make you force these, hiohio, virginia
that every vote should count. on the other hand, you would not want texas, california, or new york to determine what the whole country should move forward on. i believe that the electoral college is outdated. i am an independent voter. i voted for clinton back in the day, and i have voted for bush. i voted for obama last time. i am from ohio, but not everyone from ohio is in the unions. there are a lot people out of work here. i am really upset with the fact that mitt romney has not released his tax returns. that bothers me a great deal. but i feel like i got snowed by obama. he does not appear to be a good leader, watching these debates. it looked like he did not want to be there. the last debate, when he made a snide comment about the bayonet, i thought to myself -- is that how you are dealing with the republican party? that attitude? if someone has a nonchalant attitude, that they will talk to me in a condescending manner, i would not want to do with you, either. host: finish your thought? caller: my brother is in the army. he is fixing to go to afghanistan in june. benghazi rea
in california. if you look at why it won, it was a crossover of hispanics and black pastors and joined the republicans. rather than look at hispanics and blacks from the standpoint of what we white people want to look at, why not ask them what they're -- they're interested in? wynola get their values and their cultural agenda and their priorities and address that? that is where there is great common ground and i do not understand why republicans seemingly are afraid of their own shadow and. when it comes to that. >> in the first national election, president obama embraced gay marriage. [inaudible] is this a losing issue going forward for conservatives? >> this is an issue that is free much under debate. you're right. there were four blue stage yesterday that approved gay marriage. most of them by very narrow margins. there were far less margins in the state legislatures in some of those states. would-be disaster is is if the obama administration had used the judiciary to oppose a solution on all 50 states that involved making doma unconstitutional and cutting off a debate when the othe
was the florida card. the assumption since 2000 was you have to win florida. california, new york are no longer in play. for republicans you have to win texas and florida to move forward. >> a call to make here. the state of massachusetts the senate race much talked about for months on end in massachusetts, the first woman his to win an office of t kind in the state of massachusetts and "fox news" projects it is a done deal. this is a gain for the democrats and a loss for the republicans. elizabeth warren has beaten scott brown knocks news state of for the massachusetts. a democratic strategist, how did this happen. >> there was no outside money and an $80 million race. she became a good candidate r time. she helped tremendously was helped by the convention in charlotte as many democrats were and the debates. scott brown hurt himself badly in the debates. he came off as someone they didn't recognize. angry and defensive. huge win for massachusetts. barnd.elloo i'm jeff barnn. pilbert. fox45 is youu home ll nighh with vote 2012. 2012. we bringing you up to the minutes resslls on the ttree ball
